Help us build a bigger brewing system: Our Kickstarter project

August 19, 2014

junkyardA “Kickstarter” project is kind of like one of the pledge drives which you may remember from watching public television. The differences are: a Kickstarter is less annoying because we don’t interrupt what you’re doing, and the rewards are something that you really, really care about, maybe more than that Ken Burns documentary you were watching.

Here’s the way it works. People donate/pledge/give money to our project in exchange for a nice reward, like a shirt, sticker, keg fridge, or chance to brew a custom beer and have it served at the brewery. If we meet or exceed our goal, we get to keep the money raised and put it toward building a bigger brewing system, and we’ll send out all those awesome rewards. If we don’t meet the goal, the whole thing goes down in flames, so if you buy in and help us out, tell your friends to do it too.

We chose to do this project because we think there are a lot of people in the Moorhead and Fargo communities that want to see local breweries succeed. More importantly, we want people in our community to feel like they’re a part of the brewery, and helping out is one of the best way to make friends!

Here’s a picture of a couple of the dairy tanks we picked up to repurpose into the new 7 barrel brewing system. There’s till a lot of work to be done.


About Dean

I drank my share of pale lagers back in college in the 80's but I always wanted to try more, often drinking the 'dark' versions of beer as that was the only interesting thing on tap. I got into homebrewing in the early 90's meeting a lot of great people and then really started learning about beer and how to judge it. Then into the 00's I started branching out with beer and started to deal with beer education and paring beer with food which I did with some restaurants, even beating out wine in a beer vs. wine dinner. I don't try and push beer on people but if they ask questions and really want to listen, I can talk for hours about the subject. Now we come to today, and beer scene in the Fargo / Moorhead area and North Dakota is starting to boom. FMBeer was created with the help of MNBeer.com so people in the F/M area have a single place where they can find out more about good beer, from a calendar of events to lists of local breweries and bars. FMBeer is also a place to learn more about craft beer for those just branching out and a resource to come back to.
